Little Red Tiara


I did this tiara with size 20 floretta cotton as the beads were quite big, but it took a lot of stiffening. In the end I had to use full strength PVA craft glue and take time to wipe the excess off all of the beads. It worked though, it is lovely and stiff!

Very pretty! I never would have thought of red, even though it's my mom's favorite color. It's amazing how are eyes can be opened to new possibilities by one person's inspiration... thank you!

Beautiful tiara Linda but they can be a bugger to stiffen can't they.

That is really cool. That is the most Tiara-ish looking tatted tiara I have ever seen. And believe you me I have seen some tatted tiaras.
